"cnn newsroom" continues right now with ashleigh banfield. >>> nice to see you, everyone. it is 11:00 on the east coast. 8:00 on the west coast. and it has come down to this. after thousands of speeches and hundreds of ads, after hundreds of millions of dollars bankrolling months and months of nonstop campaigning, the two main candidates for president in 2012 are tied. see for yourself. the final preelection cnn polling could literally not be closer. president obama supported by 47% of likely voters. mitt romney supported by -- excuse me 49% of likely voters. mitt romney supported by 49% of likely voters. other late polls look very, very similar. one shows them tied at 48%. if you look way down at the bottom there. the others give the president somewhere between a one and three-point edge, depending on which one you look at there. but margin

% for the president. 47% for republican mitt romney. but, with the sampling error, it is a dead heat. now, look at this coverage. three days to go and cnn has a battleground state covered like no other news network. all over nevada, wisconsin and here in ohio. all across this country, i'm going to take you on the road with both campaigns in just a minute. first, we have a very interesting election day from the state of new jersey that they tell you about now. it involves you of victims of super storm, sandy who cannot return home or have no home anymore. our joe johns is following us in washington on this story. but what he is following is that new jersey governor chris christy is now saying that people in the affected areas of new jersey, people affected by hurricane sandy can now vote electronically. they can vote by e-mail and they can vote by fax. it is an interesting turn. joe, what are you finding out about this? >> well, it's a very interesting turn, don. as you said, in response to the super storm, the governor has issued a directive. this is for misplaced voters that can submit ballot
candidates with just three days left to go until election day. barack obama and mitt romney are making the most of every minute. both are crisscrossing the country and hitting the crucial battleground states one last time. the president's first stop today was a rally in ohio where he told a cheering crowd that his economic ideas are working. he's also stumping in wisconsin, iowa, and virginia. all today. and as we mentioned, wisconsin is one of those critical swing states the candidates are concentrating on. and campaign workers on both sides are out knocking on doors, trying to get people to the polls. white house correspondent brianna keilar joining us live from milwaukee, wisconsin. it will be a while before the president speaks there, but you got a crowd and lots of music, nonetheless. >> that's right. and this crowd is eagerly awaiting not only the president but katy perry who will be performing a small concert before president obama. here in wisconsin it's all about for the obama campaign getting people out to vote now on election day. early voting wrapped up in this state yester
and there was their flag, in perfect condition. and he said that's it on the flag pole next to mr. romney at the end of the table. and i reached over and touched ahold of that flag and pulled it out. and it was as if electricity was running through my arm, because i thought about the sacrifice of those men and women in our space program who put themselves in harm's way for learning, for pioneering, for us. it's part of the american spirit, to live for something bigger than yourself. i see it on the men and women who serve in our military. they serve us over the years. they serve us for liberty, for freedom, for hope and prosperity. i love all the verses in that wonderful him "america the beautiful," but one in particular stands out. oh, beautiful for heroes proved in liberating strife, who more than self their country love and mercy more than life. will our veterans and members of the armed serviceforces please your hand and stand and be recognized? our schools, our churches, our families. our nation. i think about my sister. my sister, lynn, who is in her 70s. her husband died a few years ago. she
of the battleground states getting a visit from mitt romney. as he and the president are maximizing each and every campaign hour. president obama is hitting wisconsin, iowa, and, of course, ohio, before heading to chicago. and very soon he will be rallying the crowds in columbus, getting a boost from some a-list celebrities. meantime, mitt romney, he is traveling up the eastern seaboard with stops in florida, ohio, virginia, and, of course, new hampshire. and during the next hour we will take you live to his event in fairfax, virginia. speaking of mitt romney, he's already making his case in lynchburg and jim acosta son the campaign trail with him. hey, jim. >> reporter: with a slew of new battleground state polls showing mitt romney trailing president obama only slightly on this day before election day, the gop nominee is making his closing argument to voters. at a campaign stop here in virginia, and earlier this morning in florida, romney warned the crowd that the country could be in store for another recession and potentially another debt ceiling crisis if mr. obama gets another four years in o
morning, thank you so much for being with me. i'm carol costello. just a warning, mitt romney will begin speaking any moment in sanford, florida. that's near orlandorlando. when mitt romney takes the mike we'll take you to florida live. on with the newscast. counting down and knotted up just hours before americans head to the polls, a presidential race that's too close to call. according to our new cnn/orc poll barack obama and mitt romney are tied at 49% among likely voters. today that has both men racing across key battleground states. here's a look at the rest of his day. as you can see in red, he then travels on to virginia, ohio and new hampshire. president obama in blue goes from wisconsin to all important ohio. and finally to iowa. we have cnn crews scattered across the country. these crucial last hours of campaigning. jim acosta is with the romney camp in sanford, florida. dan lothian is at the president's first stop in madison, wisconsin. gentlemen, we're going to ask you to read the tea leaves. two reasons for confidence at each camp and one reason for doubt. so, jim, i'd like
being shipped to china? and the reason that they are making these calls is because governor romney has been running an ad that says so. except, it is not true. everybody knows that it is not true. >>> hard fought campaign in ohio today the president in hilliard, ohio, fighting for the electoral votes that he and his competitor so fiercely want to win. that is the state to win, as you know, and it is all about ohio, ohio, ohio, but for governor romney, today, he is not going to be ignoring that state either. he is going to be speaking in ohio as well as wisconsin. we are live in the box below your screen to the right of me, the pregame warmup for governor romney in west allis, wisconsin, under way, and we are keeping a live eye on that for you, because we will show to governor's speech just as soon as he gets under way and headed to ohio. it is a very busy day for both candidates, and we are four days away from the national election, and we all know that it is critical, and we all know that today's jobs report is also critical. a brand new number gives both campaigns a whole lot to
romney promised that more can be done. over the next hour we'll look at whether these are presidential plans or presidential wish list s, christine. >> both candidates will try to spin this number to their advantage, ali. here are the facts, quite frnkly. numbers here show a jobs recovery, 150,000 jobs on average created each month this year. but that's not enough to make everyone feel like it's a robust labor market or it's really recovering. there's something here, ali, obviously, for everyone. you're going to get spin from both sides. unemployment rate from 7.9% still feels uncomfortable. the private sector is creating jobs, ali. >> absolutely. austan goolsbee, former chairman of the president's council of economic advisers. peter morissey is a professor at the university of maryland school of business and diane swonk is the chief economist with meserow. i know the case can be made that this president brought us back from the brink. did he bring us back fast enough and could this recovery have been stronger? austan? >> you know, it's always hard to say something counterfactual like
to a total of 322. mitt romney got 206. 270 needed to win the white house. >>> a huge earthquake has struck myanmar just nine days before president obama is due to visit. the 6.6 magnitude quake was centered about 226 miles north of the capital. if he goes ahead with his visit, mr. obama would be the first sitting president to visit myanmar. >>> we've got a lot more planned for you this saturday night. here's what else we're working on. a shocking admission, shaking the entire intelligence community. it may end a brilliant career. but did it put the country at risk? some say the gop needs some new faces or face extinction. on the other side, minorities help reelect president obama. has he done right by them? we've got a political intervention for both sides. >>> plus, is bond too old? >>> and it's some of the hottest lingerie in the world. but how is this sexy? thanks again for joining us. mitt romney lost the election but he may have made history. here's why. his loss could go down as the last presidential campaign to bank on the white vote for a win. in a moment, evidence of why that is a
at the latest poll that we have from october 31st, it has 49 for president obama, 49 for mitt romney, but the margin of error, is two. pennsylvania usually goes blue. what happens if pennsylvania goes red now? and will there be a contest of this election, saying hey, you know what, people were disenfranchised. what do you make of that? >> well, first of all. i know after having contacted the governor's office all the polling places are making sure that places across pennsylvania are geared up and ready to go. and hey, the power gets back on. which i know the utility company has been working hard on. or d, we utilize the generators that are available to us, and primarily through fema. so i think that we want to ensure the right to vote, all the efforts must be made to make sure the polling places, people can primarily go to the place that they normally go to vote. and that all of our efforts as government leaders, regardless of party, but certainly as mayor of the city of philadelphia, i'm going to do everything i can to make sure all of our polling places are in working, operating or

, take a look at this. 49%, 49%, president obama and mitt romney, nationwide among likely voters. that poll was taken just this weekend by cnn and orc international. three other polls released today show the two candidates tied, as well. talk about nationwide, we have reporter teams traveling with the candidates, and cnn correspondents in all the battleground states, as campaign 2012 comes to an end on election day. and do i have to remind you, that is just two days away. let's get to the road now. very hectic travel days for president obama and mitt romney. they hit four states, including virginia, where you see mitt romney right now. he's in newport news. let's listen in. >> i have a clear and unequivocal message. with the right leadership, america is about to come roaring back. we're americans. we can do anything. the only thing that stands between us and some of the best years we've ever known is lack of leadership. and that's why we have elections. this tuesday's a moment to look into the future and imagine what we can do. to put the past four years behind us, and to start b
senate candidate by the name of mitt romney said bill clinton's plan would hurt the economy, would kill jobs, would hurt the job creators. does this sound familiar? turns out his math back then was just as bad as it is now. because by the end of president clinton's second term, america created 23 million new jobs. incomes were up. port was down. our deficit had turned into a surplus. so, wisconsin, our ideas have been tested. we've tried them. they worked. the other side's ideas have also been tested. they didn't work so well. after bill clinton left office during most of the last decade well, tried giving big tax cuts to the wealthiest americans. we tried giving insurance companies and oil companies and wall street free reign to do whatever they pleased. what did we get? falling incomes, record deficits, the slowest job growth in half a century, an economic crisis that we have been cleaning up after ever since. so this should not be that complicated. we tried our ideas. they worked. the economy grew. we created jobs. deficits went down. we tried their ideas. they didn't work. the econo
at the white house. we don't know what's on the menu when president obama, mitt romney meet for lunch today. that's right. the president is hosting his former rival about 30 minutes or so from now. it is a promise the president made during a victory speech on election night. listen. >> it's only because we love this country deeply. we care so strongly about its future. in the weeks ahead i also look forward to sitting down with governor romney to talk about where we can work together to move this country forward. >> mitt romney, he was stunned by his defeat, but gracious in his concession speech. it looked like everybody was ready to make nice until romney's remarks in a phone call to top donors days after the election. he said he lost because president obama gave policy gifts to key voting groups, including miss panics, african-americans, and young voters. >> what the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> fast forward to today when
romney you get to say, the unemployment rate has gone higher, and it's still too high. if you are barack obama, you can at on another month, i guess -- i don't know how many months now it is of private sector unemployment. private sector employment growth. what it says to you when you see numbers like 171,000, we believe that 250,000 is the kind of number you have to see to really get the economy going, so this one splits right down the middle. we're in ohio, a state that's split down the middle. undecided split down the middle, and a jobs report that splits down the middle. >> do people feel this? do they feel the recovery, do you think, the folks you talk to? >> what do you think, john? >> i think people do have the sense that things are getting better? they're out of this -- we were in toledo four years ago. the unemployment rate was 12.6%. now it's actually lower than the national average. wered 7.5%. there is a sense that things are getting better, so we're just talking to the mayor of toledo, mayor bell. he was saying that the auto bailout had a big impact, but people understand th
say it's better than 800,000 jobs losing taking office. romney, he can say that unemployment rate is too high and guess what? both would be right. brooke. >> we'll get the numbers and spin tomorrow. alison kosik, thank you. >>> now to day three of recovery in the northeast. sandy has been absorbed by another weather system now but the superstorm really redefined what waterfront means here in both new jersey and new york. sandy created this new inlet in new jersey cutting this barrier island in to two. our affiliate spoke with a homeowner of the home that was next door. >> there's nothing -- i mean, right now there's -- it's just water where the house would be. there's not even sand where the house was. there's a wake where the house was. since there's nothing left to go back to sift through, whether it's three days or three weeks, you know, all we would be looking at is a sand pile. >> and since this video was taken there, crews have built up a road so trucks can pass by. this is just one example of how sandy reworked this landscape here in new jersey. the satellite view shows sea
and virginia. mitt romney stumping in new hampshire, iowa, and colorado. they're running mates are also going nonstop. vice president is in colorado and paul ryan is holding rallies in pennsylvania, virginia, florida, and ohio. so ohio indeed could be the biggest battleground of the election. the race there is very tight. a just released cnn/orc poll shows obama ahead by just three points, well within the margin of error. an nbc/"wall street journal" poll shows a wider gap with obama leading by six points. president obama is about to speak at a rally in mentor, ohio. he is at least in the building, we understand. and so is our white house correspond dan loathian. the president's schedule is packed today. he isn't just campaigning. he is also keeping a close watch on the storm which he says really is his first priority. >> reporter: that's correct. white house officials saying that president did get updates, briefings overnight. this morning he went to fema headquarters in washington to get a briefing in person, to get a sense of what is taking place with regards to the flooding, the power sit

romney. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate, down to 5.2% right now. today we learned that it is actually 7.9% and that's 9 million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> now, as you might expect, the president is zeroing in on the job numbers. here he is, take a listen. >> today our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs and this morning we learned the companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> all right, with that said, i want to bring in now our chief business correspondent, mr. ali velshi, he's traveling on the cnn election express and also there is john avalon, cnn contributor. hello, gentlemen. listen, you all heard what the president and mr. romney had to say, but, you know, let's talk about the political capital here. who is going to get more political capital out of this with just four days to the election, ali? >> well, hands down president obama because he had the most to lose out of this thing. the issue was if the unemployment rate went up s
was talking a lot about how mitt romney was not the candidate of change. he said talking or not really elaborating on policies, not answering questions about policies, not change. he said that making changes to entitlements like medicare is change, but not the kind of change that americans want, and he gave really quite his sort of rouzing speech that you could say was very much making his argument for why he should be re-elected and why voters should not give mitt romney a chance, suzanne. >> let's talk a little bit about the sprint to the finish here, briana, because i imagine you'll be doing an auchl lot of traveling here. the president who will be campaigning today, of course, at nevada and colorado following this event. tomorrow he is in ohio. the weekend unbelievable the schedule here. we are talking about a blitz across seven battleground states. do we expect that the message is going to change? what is going to be the closing argument we're going hear from this president? >> you know, i think it is -- it isn't really just -- this to me, this event here, is really the kickoff to
